Materials: Any small object to pass
How to Play: Players sit in a circle. A “hot potato” (beanbag or
ball) is passed around the circle until a player standing outside the
circle calls, “Hot potato!” The player with the potato in her hands at
this moment starts a separate potato caller circle, calls out a number.
Those in the potato caller circle count off to this number and end by
saying, “Hot potato!” in unison. The game continues until all but two
players have moved to the potato caller circle. Most players have no
sense of winning or losing in this game, as it’s fun to be in either
Plan for Success: Model and practice passing the object.
